A five-strong Australian contingent spearheaded by 2020 runner-up Cameron Smith is tipped to make its mark at Augusta when the 2021 Masters begins on Thursday night (AEST).
Smith, 2013 champion Adam Scott, Jason Day, Marc Leishman and Matt Jones are all considered ‘live chances’ as they battle the world’s best including reigning champ Dustin Johnson, big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau and an in-form Jordan Spieth.
World No.1 Johnson shattered the course record with a 20-under-par 268 in rain-softened conditions in November but this tournament could be vastly different — and more difficult — with lightning-fast greens and firm fairways putting the field on notice.
“The way it’s playing right now, there are some holes, some pin positions… some of them are almost impossible to get to,” former champion Sergio Garcia said during the practice rounds.
